    The Ultimate Pokemon Challenge

    So, I've been playing through Black and White 2 and it kinda got me thinking about the old days, and then I realized that I have never completed a pokedex in my entire pokemon career, so I've decided to go back and play through the old games. There are a couple rules though.

    1. You must complete the pokedex in every game (shouldn't be too hard if you are trading pokemon over from the previous one)
    2. You cannot cheat to get pokemon. You must catch them legitly.
    3. There is only 1 exception to Rule #2 and that is that you can cheat for event pokemon, but ONLY the event item. You still must catch the pokemon legitly.
    4. This isn't so much of a rule, but more of a warning: You cannot play the Gen 1 and 2 games. You must play Fire Red and Leaf Green and Heart Gold and Soul Silver. The reason for this is because there is no way to trade pokemon from Gen 2 to Gen 3, so you'll be screwed if you don't play the remakes.

    I'll be updating this thread with my progress, and I hope you guys do the same.

    So with every game since Gen3 you realy mean every single entry in the main franchise?
    Ruby+Sapphire+FireRed+LeafGreen+Emerald+Diamond+Perl+Platinum+HeartGold+SoulSilver+Black+W hite+Black2+White2=14 titles? D:

    Wow I played Pokemon a lot and I only 100% completed 5 of them and have no intention of buying the other 8 (I might buy b2 or w2 though, haven't yet) but I wish you every success with this venture!

    No, haha I should have clarified. I plan on playing Fire Red, then Soulsilver, then Emerald, then Platinum, then Black 1, and finally Black 2. It'd be pointless to make you play all 2 or 3 games in each gen.

    you know what the most boring part of it is? catching 100+ lvl 2 pokemon in order to trade them over

    Yep. I remember back in Gen 3 catching 100 wurmples and zigzagoons. It was horrible.

    I would set up a challenge for myself; Find my Pokemon Red and Blue and complete them on my N64 ... again! Oh god how I loved Pokemon Stadium. I want more of it!

    I had all (251 was it?) Pokemon in the original Gold version. I consider this your challenge completed, about a decade ago. Largely because 95% of the Pokemon added after Gold and Silver were just... Stupid. As was the increasing requirements to have over 9000 HMs, as though the game was intended for you to have one or two level 100 tanks, and four or five that had never seen a battle and were only there for the HM abilities...

    Really?

    Anyway, I just finished the Unova Dex in W2. Working backwards now, so Platinum -> Soulsilver -> Emerald -> LG
    Least I'm halfway to the Shiny Charm now... catching 300 Pokemon in a single game just to finish a regional dex is annoying!

    No one's forcing you to do the challenge, but quit coming in here and saying "I caught all the pokemon from the first 2 gens... challenge completed." There's almost 500 pokemon, which means you are only halfway done.

    Dude, trust me when I say all gen's have horrible shitty pokemons. The new gens, especially B/W started what I like to call, being on the right track. I found the game had all I want.

    Wish you good luck OP Would never bother it haha. Im glad enough to still have my old originale pokemon blue game (Still working!) with 150/151 and only about 51 hours played:P I should one day get an Electabuzz caught for the final 151.
    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?

    Traded up all the legendaries I didn't have from White 1/Black 1 so I can SR for them when I get it.
